JACKSON, Miss. — A protest at the University of Mississippi against the re-election of President Barack Obama grew into crowd of about 400 people with shouted racial slurs as rumors of a riot spread on social media. Two people were arrested on minor charges. The university said in a statement Wednesday that the gathering at the student union began late Tuesday night with about 30 to 40 students, but grew within 20 minutes as word spread. Some students chanted political slogans while others used derogatory racial statements and profanity, the statement said.
The election of the Great Post-Racial Uniter in 2008 would eliminate the race divisions in the country once and for all, or so we were told. By that measure, the re-election of the GR-PU, given his unifying and race-neutral message of the last four years, should have us in a race war by August at the latest.
Reading this kind of thing used to make me cringe with embarrassment. Now, I couldn't care less. It just makes me laugh. So go ahead and toss around the "N word" and hang Obama in effigy. As long as nobody gets hurt, it makes everyone feel better - the students vent some, and the Blacks get to wallow in their beloved resentment.
Now about the latest Black on White beatdown, I'm not amused in the slightest.
I think its high time to consider splitting up this country into two halves -- red and blue. I don't see the point in trying to all live under one roof any more. Wouldn't both sides be happier?
[I do realize that the blue states would collapse under the weight of their socialism and they would all be invading the red states for the sake of freedom, but that would be fine with me as long as we have rock solid constitution preventing wealth redistribution.]
I have seen, and been the target, of many instances of black racism against whites. Just like all white people are not racist, not all black people are either. But some are--they hate whites because they are white.
For those calling for a split in the country, stand fast.
You are correct those Blue areas would be crushed under their own Socialism, but who do you think they would turn to for help? Red states? Nope.
They would reach out to China. Or Russia. Or any other Socialist state. In effect, they would be overtaken. And then, instead of two oceans separating us from our adversaries, they would be literally at our doorstep.
No. The answer, I believe, is for individual states to stand against Federal tyranny and say, 'No thanks. We're not playing.' Refuse to play. Stand your ground and refuse to play.
We should all be rioting. We are about to have our pockets picked and our freedom taken. It's time to take a stand. There are hundreds of thousands who died to give us freedom. Their sacrifice is going to be in vain.
Oh my - racial slurs! You mean a bunch of whites shouted out what the blacks call each other every day. Wake me when gangs of whites start picking lone, defenseless blacks for beatings or murder. In the meantime, blacks can get used to reaping a bit of what they've sown.
Dittos #12! I am already changing a lot of plans because of the CA tax hikes. I will fight them with everything I do. Nothing they get from me will be without an expense to them. That goes for the feds too.
These ''riots'' sound about 1/1000th as bad as the average celebration looting and destruction in cities like LA or Detroit when their NBA team wins a championship.
If these ''riots'' were all black students and pro-NØbama, they could loot and destroy cars and beat up white people and call cops every racist and evil name in the book, and it would be defended by every lie-beral out there as ''freedom of speech'' and ''freedom of assembly''.
But a few anglo students get together and blow off some frustration by yelling and speawing a few bad words, and this is just just horrible and should be illegal (since they are obviously ''hate crimes'') in the minds of lie-berals.
Good for the kids. At least they learned about tyranny and liberty. I heard and saw vicious things said and written about Romney and what would happen if he won and the MSM was silent. So &)_(&_ I say. Riot, scream, say politically incorrect things. Don't hurt anyone or damage property--because we are responsible Reps. But vent. We are entitled. Remember, the left hates us, really hates us. So what do we have to lose.
i don't think this story is true. it stinks of the accusation that tea partiers spit on black members of congress. We're still waiting for the $10,000 video to prove it. All I see evidence of is one burned sign. Where are the videos of this alleged slurring?
I agree that black racism is far worse and more rampant than anything coming from whites, but that does NOT excuse the ignorant and stupid use of racial slurs by whites either. Didn't your mother teach you that two wrongs don't make a right??? Sorry, but it IS embarrassing and just plain wrong to turn this into a racial issue. And anybody who claims to be a conservative or a Republican that thinks it is ok & goes along with this should be ashamed of themselves. Race, skin color, physical characteristics, & other similar things do NOT define a person. I can't believe people are willing to let the leftist manipulators win by dividing us & making us hate each other based on totally irrelevant things like melanin. You are allowing the left to control you and devolve into tribalism just as they want you to. That is NOT what our Founders believed in. That is NOT a civilized society. It is NOT alright to lower oneself to the lowest common denominator, no matter how hurt, frustrated, or angry you are.
As another poster said, where is the video to confirm that racial slurs were chanted? The answer is there is none, This story is a plant done with a typical liberal propaganda tactic---make an allegation that is supported with anecdotes that can neither be proven nor disproven.

If this was a group of black panthers screaming that they want to kill all white people, which they do regularly, nothing would be said. Rap music use such terms all of the time. Street thugs and gang members use such terms everday. When is is going to be unacceptable for them to speak in such terms. I thought we were all equal and had freedom to express ourselves. I am not in favor of insulting anyone, however I don't like it when I am being told what I can and cannot say. As some posters have said, it doesn't bring us together.
TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Country Music Hall of Fame member and country music legend Ray Price, 87, plans to leave East Texas Medical Center in Tyler on Thursday to go to his home in Mount Pleasant where he will be provided with hospice care. Price, who is best known for his country classics, including Release Me, Crazy Arms and For the Good Times, has been battling pancreatic cancer since 2011. Since then, the disease has spread to his liver, intestines and lungs, even with aggressive treatment. Price and his wife, Janie, who have been married for 45 years, made the
HOUSTON - "Affluenza," the term used by a psychologist to argue that a North Texas teenager from a wealthy family should not be sent to prison for killing four pedestrians while driving drunk, is not a recognized diagnosis and should not be used to justify bad behavior, psychologists said Thursday. The term was popularized in the late 1990s by Jessie O´Neill, the granddaughter of a past president of General Motors, when she wrote the book "The Golden Ghetto: The Psychology of Affluence." It has since been used to describe a condition in which children — generally from richer families —
WASHINGTON — The House moved toward passage of a bipartisan budget accord on Thursday evening that is intended as a truce in the spending battles that have paralyzed Congress for nearly three years, as leaders in both parties sought to marginalize hard-line conservatives opposed to any compromise. With bipartisan support in hand, Speaker John A. Boehner of Ohio declared open warfare on the outside conservative groups that have tried to scuttle the budget deal. For the second day in a row, he accused groups like Club for Growth, Heritage Action and Americans for Prosperity of reflexively opposing a reasonable plan
WASHINGTON – The Obama administration moved Thursday to help tens of thousands of sick Americans who have struggled to enroll in health coverage for next year because of problems with the rollout of new insurance marketplaces created by the president’s health law. The Department of Health and Human Services announced that patients who have been enrolled in special insurance plans for consumers denied coverage elsewhere would be able to stay on those plans until the end of January. Nearly 86,000 people are currently in such plans. These state-based plans – known as Pre-existing Condition Insurance Plans – were created by
Wall Street´s third down day in a row pushed stocks to their lowest levels in a month as investors worried that the end may be nearing for the Federal Reserve´s support for the economy. The Fed´s stimulus efforts have been a key factor in the bull market that has pushed the Standard & Poor´s 500 index 25 higher percent this year. Investors know it will end sooner or later. But the timing, and the fallout, are uncertain. Until this month, stocks had risen for eight weeks straight. But stocks posted their biggest declines in five weeks on Wednesday, and dropped
Approximately 800 school children waving American flags greeted the Wreaths Across America convoy at their school on Wednesday in Middletown, N.J., for a wreath laying ceremony and tribute honoring World War II veterans who fought in the Battle of the Bulge. The WAA caravan included over 10 trailer trucks filled with wreaths. The group is laying wreaths to honor and remember the country’s veterans during its weeklong journey, which began in Maine on Dec. 7. Its final stop will be at Arlington National Cemetery on Dec. 14, where at least 100,000 wreaths will be laid on the graves of veterans.
(Video) Speaker John Boehner´s (R-Ohio) outburst Thursday at outside conservative groups is going viral on the Internet. Boehner voiced incredulity Thursday that the same groups that pushed Republicans to shut down the government later said they knew the strategy wouldn´t succeed in defunding ObamaCare. “Are you kidding me?!” Boehner exclaimed at the GOP´s press conference at the Capitol. It’s the second day in a row Boehner has criticized the groups. People began tweeting that Boehner’s outburst would make a good Gif.
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there.

When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
The health director who approved the release of President Obama’s birth certificate has died in a plane crash, Hawaiian officials said Thursday. Loretta Fuddy died after the Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft she was travelling on went down shortly after leaving Kalaupapa Airport at around 3:15 p.m. local time (10:15 a.m. ET) on Wednesday. The other eight people on board were rescued, Richard Schuman, president of Makani Kai Air, told NBC News early Thursday, adding that that there was no indication as to why the plane had crashed. Fuddy hit the headlines two years ago when she approved a waiver request allowing Obama to
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
